MIAMI — Miami-Dade County total home sales increased 5.4% year-over-year as single-family home transactions and condo sales rose 6.5% and 4.5%, respectively, in April 2024, according to statistics released by the MIAMI Association of Realtors (MIAMI) and the MIAMI Southeast Florida Multiple Listing Service (SEFMLS).

 

“Miami real estate is less impacted from elevated mortgage rates than other markets because of our high percentage of cash buyers and massive wealth migration,” MIAMI Chairman of the Board Gus Fonte said. “Miami cash buyers jumped double digits year-over-year and helped fuel the condo market to one of its best months in recent memory. Condo sales from the $300,000 price level and up each increased year-over-year.”

 

Miami Condo Sales Increase 4.5% as Total Sales, Single-Family Home Transactions Rise Too

Total Miami-Dade sales increased 5.4% in April 2024, from 2,222 to 2,342. The statistics would be much stronger if they included South Florida’s robust developer new construction market and volume.

 

Miami single-family home sales increased 6.5% year-over-year in April 2024, from 1,000 to 1,065. Miami existing condo sales increased 4.5% year-over-year, from 1,222 in to 1,277.

 

The following price buckets for the Miami condo market each had an increase in sales: $300,000 to $400,000 (3% sales increase); $400,000 to $600,000 (5.3%); $600,000 to $1M (8.1%); and $1M and up (45%)

MIAMI Chief Economist: South Florida’s Strong Job Growth, Migration Boosting Market

“We’re seeing a South Florida housing market that is amazingly defying the gravity of rising interest rates, particularly in Miami-Dade, Broward, and St. Lucie.,” MIAMI REALTORS® Chief Economist Gay Cororaton said. “Strong job growth, elevated migration, and more cash buyers are mitigating the blow of higher mortgage rates.”

 

According to Freddie Mac, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaged 7.02% as of May 16. That’s down from 7.09% the previous week but up from 6.39% one year ago.

 

Miami New Listings Nearing Pre-Pandemic Level, Giving Buyers More Options

Miami new listings have increased for eight consecutive months and are nearing pre-pandemic levels. This has added to total inventory and is giving home buyers more variety.

Miami-Dade Inventory is Still Down 35.5% From Historical Average

Miami Real Estate: 12+ Years of Consecutive Home Price Appreciation

Miami-Dade County single-family home median prices increased 9% year-over-year in April 2024, increasing from $600,000 to $654,000.

This is much higher than other global cities: Sydney, Australia ($1M only purchases 43 square meters), Shanghai (42), Paris (40), Los Angeles (38), New York (34), Geneva (34), London (33), Singapore (32), Hong Kong (22) and Monaco (16).

 

South Florida’s Incredible Wealth Migration

With elevated levels of out-of-state migration into Southeast Florida and its strong economy that has attracted business expansions and relocations, the share of million-dollar homes to total sales has steadily climbed since 2019. In 2023, the share of million-dollar homes to total single-family sales listed on the MIAMI SEFMLS rose to 17% in 2023 (6% in 2019); for condos/townhomes, the share rose to 9% (5% in 2019).

 

Migration into Southeast Florida remains strong. In 2023, 153,347 driver licenses were exchanged for a Florida license in the counties of Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin, up 8.3% from the level in 2022 (141,621). New York, New Jersey, and California continue to be the market’s top feeder states.

 

Miami Real Estate Posts $285 Million Local Economic Impact in April 2024
Every time a home is sold it impacts the economy: income generated from real estate industries (commissions, fees and moving expenses), expenditures related to home purchase (furniture and remodeling expenses), multiplier of housing related expenditures (income earned as a result of a home sale is re-circulated into the economy) and new construction (additional home sales induce added home production).

 

The total economic impact of a typical Florida home sale is $122,000, according to NAR. Miami-Dade sold 2,342 homes in April 2024 for a local economic impact of $285 million.

 

Miami total dollar volume totaled $2.2 billion in April 2024. Single-family home dollar volume increased 29.9% year-over-year to $1.2 billion. Condo dollar volume decreased 27.5% year-over-year to $1 billion.

 

Miami Distressed Sales Remain Low, Reflecting Healthy Market
Only 0.9% of all closed residential sales in Miami were distressed last month, including REO (bank-owned properties) and short sales, lower than 1.3% in April 2023. In 2009, distressed sales comprised 70% of Miami sales.

 

Short sales and REOs accounted for 0.1% and 0.7% year-over-year, respectively, of total Miami sales in April 2024.

 

Miami’s percentage of distressed sales are lower than the national figure. Nationally, distressed sales represented 2% of sales in April 2024, virtually unchanged from last month and the prior year.

 

Miami: Highest Appreciating U.S. Housing Market in 2023 via CoreLogic

In Florida, closed sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 24,682 in April 2024, up 5.8% year-over-year, while existing condo-townhouse sales totaled 10,228, up 1.9%. Closed sales may occur from 30- to 90-plus days after sales contracts are written.

The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes was $429,900, up 4.9% from the previous year, according to data from Florida Realtors Research Department in partnership with local Realtor boards/associations. Last month’s statewide median price for condo-townhouse units was $330,000, up 3.1% over the year-ago figure. The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less.

Miami Real Estate Attracting Near List Price
The median percent of original list price received for single-family homes was 96.7% in April 2024. The median percent of original list price received for existing condominiums was 95.2%.

 

The median number of days between listing and contract dates for Miami single-family home sales was 28 days, down from 30 days last year. The median time to sale for single-family homes was 70 days, down from 71 days last year.

Miami Cash Sales 43.9% More than National Figure
Cash sales represented 40.3% of Miami closed sales in April 2024, compared to 37.9% in April 2023. About 28% of U.S. home sales are made in cash, according to the latest NAR statistics.

 

Cash buyers are not deterred by rising rates. The high percentage of cash buyers reflects Miami’s top position as the preeminent American real estate market for foreign buyers, who tend to purchase with all cash as well as some moving from more expensive U.S. markets who can buy more with their profits from real estate sales.

 

Cash sales accounted for 52.4% of all Miami existing condo sales and 24.2% of single-family transactions.
